Five-race maiden, from major yard; stayed on for second over 1m4f at Lingfield (AW) on handicap debut and seemed unsuited by the return to 9.4f at Wolverhampton last time; open to improvement back up in distance; respected.

J: Tom Marquand

Raced only on AW; couple of comfortable wins over 12.5f at Newcastle in January; two defeats have followed but 2m looked a shade too far last time; now goes in reapplied cheekpieces; has possibilities if he transfers his best form to turf.

J: Adam Farragher

T: William Haggas

Gained back-to-back wins at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) in January but disappointed in his hat-trick bid over the same C&D last month; still lightly raced and pedigree offers hope that this much longer trip will be within range, but he does need to put that latest effort behind him.

Unsuited by drop back to 9.4f on final 3yo start; has shown improved form with two comfortable wins over C&D this year and remains highly unexposed at about 1m4f; likely to progress again and cope with his new mark upped further in grade; big player.

Success wouldn't be out of turn for this ten-race maiden, who has been placed in four of his last five starts, latest at Southwell (1m6f) following wind surgery; gives impression this drop back in distance will suit; possibilities.

Running well on the AW lately and is just 1lb higher than when winning this race under Brodie Hampson the last time it took place in 2022 (has won off a higher mark since); conditions were very different then and most of her turf wins have come on good to firm, but she has won on soft; high on the list.

Veteran who has a largely unconvincing record (Flat/hurdles) for current yard; suited by this course in the past and is well treated on peak form but may be on the wane now.
